USED Vintage V52 tele

But the BEST PRICE will be here in store.

It’s got style and mojo, great feel and tone but has a masty dent at the bottom. Still a great purchase, reflected in the price.

More info:
Body Condition: 7/10 – Overall for the age of guitar (we estimate around 10 years) I would say it’s in good shape. The guitar has been gigged and has some impact damage to the bottom of the body (see pictures) there are various surface scratches around the body also, but nothing you wouldn’t expect to find on any other used gloss guitar.

Neck: 8/10 – The neck is in good shape too, some light wear on the frets but nothing major that would require any fret work (flat spots etc) nice comfortable slim taper to the neck and the 22 fret is a bonus! Vintage looks with modern playability. No bumps or dings to the back of the neck, a couple of small dings in the underside of the headstock.

Hardware: 8/10 – All original stock Wilkinson hardware. Some tarnishing on the bridge and saddles but all functions perfectly. Please note the switch tip is non original.

Electrics: 9/10
Sockets, pots and switches etc are wear and tear items. The electrics on this guitar have been tested and are in very good working order, but my standard disclaimer is it’s a used guitar and one must expect SOME occasional electrical ‘scratching’ noise, crackling and popping when adjusting pots and switches. When we tested it, this guitar was working very very well.

This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK’s most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs.
That doesn’t mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation etc so that it plays as well as can be expected and stays in tune as good as any guitar of this type does.
We all have differing styles and demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for fretboard burning licks, others prefer a high n mightly action for show stopping windmills and downtuned heavy riffing and everything in between. No one set up suits all!
This specific guitar has been set up sympathetically for it’s style so has a fairly low action, and minimal fret buzzing.

Case: No gig bag or case included with the guitar but it will be well packed for shipment.

Priced with all of the above in mind but feel free to “make an offer”.
